. the the "rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good eveningish ed. thank you, my friend. >> you bet. >> thanks now at home for staying with us for this hour. the 1992 presidential election. that was the election that cut short poppy bush's time in office, right? he was only a one-term president because he lost in 1992. democrats like to remember 1992 as a triumphant year for the democratic party because there was this young arkansas democratic governor bill clinton unseating an incumbent republican president. the uncomfortable part of that memory for democrats is that even though bill clinton did beat president bush in 1992 he did so with only 43% of the vote. bill clinton got 43% of the vote that year. president bush got 37% of the vote. and even though it is always a bad idea to do math on television, this one isn't that hard. if you add up 43 and 37 you do not get anywhere near 100% of the vote. what happened to the rest of the vote? the wacky thing about the 1992 election in terms of thinking about american binary red versus blue party politics is that another guy wh

the sheriff can do this but another attorney says no he cannot. rachel, you think he can, why? >> he absolutely can because the president can't tell state law enforcement officials what to do. the state law enforcement official is totally within his right, these are your laws. you enforce them. federal authority is who should be enforcing the federal law. guns are regulated by federal law. the sheriff is doing anything wrong by saying that he will not enforce federal law. we see it all the time. in colorado the law is in conflict with state and federal with marijuana. the state officials do not go out and arrest people under the federal law. bottom line what he is doing is not wrong. >> first let me start off, me or you or the sheriffs to decide whether or not these proposed laws are constitutional. that is left for the court system. i certainly believe the sheriff has great intentions but at the end of the day, it's not law enforcement officer's duty to determine constitutionality of laws. i agree to a certain extent with your other guests. the feds are not going to require these st
